Its time for a Sassy Saturday! One of my dearest friends, long time models and a creative director I have had the honor to work with on more projects than I can count... the incomparable Sassy Devine aka Jamie Lee. This isn't one of our more well known shots but I love it. A collaboration that involved so many elements that seamlessly came together and in post production I learned some pretty awesome graphic skills to turn it into the illustration I had envisioned. Hope you enjoy it as much we enjoyed making it! Keep your eyes peeled for a Sassy Portfolio coming out soon of all of our work together over the years in an effort to support and promote her in her quest to capture the title of Miss Continental in Chicago Labor day weekend! Happy Saturday! KR #iamsassy#kristoferreynoldsphotography#model#editorial#tattoo#art#glbt#pride#graphicdesign#illustration
Matthew Shepard • 24 June • Gay Pride Month: Day Twenty-four of Thirty • Celebrating and honoring the memory of influential GLBTQ figures from the richly diverse fabric of history to the present • 🌈
Matthew Wayne "Matt" Shepard [01 December 1976 – 12 October 1998] was an American student at the University of Wyoming who was beaten, tortured and left to die near Laramie on the night of 06 October 1998. Six days later, he died from severe head injuries at Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Perpetrators Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson were arrested shortly after the attack and charged with first degree murder following Shepard's death. Significant media coverage was given to the killing and what role Shepard's sexual orientation might have played as a motive in the commission of the crime. The prosecutor argued that McKinney's murder of Shepard was premeditated and driven by greed. McKinney's defense counsel countered that he had only intended to rob Shepard, but had killed him in a rage when Shepard made a sexual advance towards him. McKinney's girlfriend told police that he had been motivated by anti-gay sentiment, but later recanted her statement, saying that she had lied because she thought it would help him. Both McKinney and Henderson were convicted of the murder and each sentenced to two consecutive life sentences.
Shepard's murder brought national and international attention to hate crime legislation at the state and federal levels. In October 2009, the United States Congress passed the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act [commonly the "Matthew Shepard Act" or "Shepard/Byrd Act" for short], and on 28 October 2009, President Barack Obama signed the legislation into law. Following her son's murder, Judy Shepard became a prominent LGBT rights activist and established the "Matthew Shepard Foundation." Shepard's death inspired notable films, novels, plays, songs, and other works. #matthewshephard#glbthistory#glbt#gaypridemonth#gaypride#hatecrimelegislation#hatecrimes#matthewshepardfoundation#shepardbyrdact#neveragain#wewillalwaysremember#noh8#hrc#loveislove #🌈
Eu quero você. Quero dividir uma cama bem apertada — e olha que eu sempre odiei a ideia de “nós”, todos sabem que sou mais do tipo “sai pra lá”. Eu quero beijos longos e abraços eternos. Eu quero tudo sem me preocupar com nada. E que esse nada nunca atrapalhe nosso tudo. Eu quero o mundo inteiro pra nós, e nós em cada canto do mundo. Eu quero declarações no meio do nada, brigas por causa de tudo e reconciliações terminadas na cama. #gay#glbt#gaybrasil#gaylove#love#lovegay#liberdade#amor#amorgay
As pessoas não têm paciência para relacionamentos. Se está ruim elas simplesmente trocam. Não tentam, não se empenham, não lutam para dar certo. Não acho que a gente tem que aceitar tudo que o outro nos dá. Não acho que temos que cruzar os braços para o que está errado. Mas o amor exige uma dose de sacrifício. O amor não é descartável. O amor não pode ser jogado fora. Não dá pra fazer uma lipo no amor. A gente tem é que lutar por ele. Diariamente. #love#lovegay#gaybrasil#gaylove#gay#gaybrasil#glbt#gay
